The thing is, people are paying for sports, not to view someone’s political agenda. And kneeling on the field is exactly that - a political agenda. When they kneel for Captain David Dorn, or that black trooper recently murdered in FL (both killed by guess what - not white guy), then I’ll be more accepting. Until then, they can go frick theirselves. These “protests” are done when it’s convenient... hence, where are the ones for Dorn? .


Exactly and when football is passé, all of the star black athletes are going to be wondering: WTF happened to my multi-million dollar contract.
Translation: be care what you wish for Cancel Culture.

Lol this is so funny. No one said a word about 9/11 when players talked about it but this is a issue all of a sudden

It'll take much more than a peaceful protest and voicing your opinion to get me to distance myself from Georgia football.

What the hell does 9/11 have to do with this?

Hmmmm the original post talked about politics...9/11 wasn't about politics ?? If it's such a bother...why is this such a issue??

Assuming that there is a season, I don't expect any Dawg fans to quit watching games. It's easy to talk and make political forum posts but not so easy to tune out.

Not exactly like that. I phrased it poorly. And not as much with a group of people. But if it ever has gotten close to that sort of situation before, black friends of mine have always stepped in.

We should probably hold our police to higher standards than looters and rioters. But yes, black people should be, and are upset about them dying as well. It’s just not at the hands of the group of people who are supposed to protect you.

While that’s true, stats and facts tell a different story. However, stats are only relevant when it fits one’s agenda. The msm and baiters would have us believe that it’s out of control, yet it isn’t. And it doesn’t give the facts that cops are shot at a rate of some 15x greater by blacks than the other way around. Seems to me that personal accountability isn’t a thing.

It always baffles me how conservatives think they are the only ones with money. . . Or that their opinions are popular just because the folks around them believe the same thing.

I'm old enough to remember a conversation on this board and other forums about Kap's protest and Nike way back in 2019. Corporations seem to remember well. Take a look at where the money is aligning right now. The debate is over.

Also, the notion that these black millionaires are rich because of anything other than their own exceptionalism in a highly competitive and lucrative profession is pure nonsense. You didn't make them any more than you made Bill Gates or Jeff Bezos, and none of these guys are afraid.

You're way over estimating how many people actually give a frick about kneeling

I would put up with about anything short of them kicking my dog or having sex with my old lady if they were as meaningful a friend to me as UGA football has been for 47 years. That ain't to say I wouldn't be pissed off with them if they became said insufferable assclown but I wouldn't end a meaningful relationship over it.

Yeah but if you're going to watch football the players aren't going to stop playing and preach to you for 3 hours, they'll still play football

Very few people stand at attention with hand over heart every time they hear the anthem. Most people who express outrage are as phony as Trump is. That fact will become apparent to all when no one boycotts football.

The year of kneeling in 2016 - the NFL was down 17pct in revenue. They blamed it on everything but the fact that simply lots of people turned it off. Everyone knew why the NFL was losing cash. That’s why I love capitalism. Good luck in the woke olympics.

I'm sure that directly correlated with the kneeling and not a mixture of asinine new rules and the rise of online streaming as many were also doing away with cable

I'm not all that interested in the NFL before the playoffs but, after the way the owners betrayed players, I found better things to do on Sundays. Some people lost interest and backed Trump and the owners--others lost interest because they were disgusted by Trump and the owners. The NFL lost all the way around.

Now players will be able to protest but I don't think that the league will hurt by that. Weeks of demonstrations by all races proved which side won the day. Trump, and you, lost.

If by equal you mean can a conservative athlete lose his career, be vilified, and receive death threats for a protest the answer is obviously yes.

.....

Just wanted to point out that bit of irony.

.....

From my perspective a protest should absolutely be allowed, but it's the nature of conservatism to maintain the status quo or change slowly if things must change at all. Conservatives are also more invested in symbols and tradition, so that particular form of protest is less likely.

If someone were to kneel to bring attention to a pro-life stance for instance there may be backlash because it'll be seen as coopting someone else's movement, and there will be pushback from folks who disagree on the substance.

There will no deflection, though. People will address the disagreement head on and not hide behind the troops and/or the flag.
